Windows 10 revealed: Microsoft's next OS fuses Windows 7 and 8

Mark Hachman | Oct. 1, 2014
Microsoft executives said Windows 10 is Microsoft's response to feedback to consumers and businesses who still weren't satisfied with Windows 8. And you'll get to try it out for yourself.

"For businesses, I think there are some businesses who have picked it up and they are really early adopters, but in general, the sense--when we engage with customers, we're not hearing a lot of reception out there," Wes Miller, an analyst with Directions on Microsoft, said in advance of the briefing. "We're hearing a lot of businesses even before whatever that thing comes out tomorrow, before that came out, businesses were saying, we're going to hang out on Windows 7, it's stable, it does what we need to do."

Through Window Insiders we're inviting our more vocal Windows fans" to help refine the Windows experience, executives said. Users wil be able to sign up at preview.windows.com, he said, where they will be able to hold private discussions with Windows engineers and give feedback.

"Windows 10 will be our most open, collaborative OS project ever," Myerson said.
